cool + cool + cool = uncool?

Stirling Moss is a living legend, that Ferrari in the photo is pretty damn (overpriced) sexy, and that leather racing bag by Caracella is pretty wicked looking.

So why does this photo seem so tacky/cheesy? Overkill maybe? ¬†Artificial-ness? I think the car and the bag are just too ‘matched’…a plain blue Ferrari would have worked much better. Is the problem Sir Moss’ shoes? HA! Is the problem that the presence of a Ferrari make things instantly uncool? I’m not sure—and maybe you won’t even agree with me. ¬†I believe this is evidence that things don’t add up as they should sometimes.
